On July 21, 2015, Gospel Outreach Mission led by Martin Lalthangliana, provided nearly 6,000 booklets from World Missionary Press to be distributed at the first ever international Acquire the Fire youth conference in Yangon, Myanmar, which was hosted by Myanmar Evangelical Christian Alliance in partnership with Teen Mania International.

A few days later, on Friday and Saturday, July 24 and 25, over 11,000 young people attended the youth conference. People from all over Myanmar bused and trained into Yangon to be part of this free event. It was a powerful time of God’s outpouring upon the youth of Myanmar, inspiring them to follow wholeheartedly after God, bringing the message of salvation to every corner of the country.

On the second day of the Acquire the Fire youth conference, the booklets were passed out to the attendees, alongside a free lunch provided by the conference hosts.

We are praying that these scripture booklets will in turn be distributed to friends, family and communities of the young people who attended the conference, and usher in God’s light over the precious nation of Myanmar.

Teen Mania International, Myanmar Evangelical Christian Alliance, and their partner organization, Within Reach Global, would like to thank Gospel Outreach Mission and World Missionary Press for their generous donation of free booklets. Your generosity is impacting countless thousands who have been waiting for the gospel message to be communicated clearly to them. From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you!
